Customization Tips and Techniques:
The unique shape of the box and its handle element is not enough to make it stand out for the client’s product in such vast and competitive markets. This calls for custom gable boxes, a service that enables clients to customize their boxes in any way the company can deem possible. In short, customized, colorful, attractive and boxes with some unique characteristics can help them stand out amongst the audience which results in increasing the business’s yield revenue. Following are some of the ideas we suggest to make your gable boxes more unique and attractive.
CREATIVE DESIGN CUSTOMIZATIONS:
A raw packaging box always results in a dull and poor image of the box, but that can be changed with a team of creative graphic designers provided at the client’s disposal. These designers can collaborate with the client and create new and unique designs that can convey the idea of the product and at the same time make the gable box very attractive and unique to the client. This leaves a lasting first impression of the product and results in an eye-catching appearance of the packaging attracting the customers, ultimately forcing them to buy the product. Moreover, custom shapes and sizes of the box might require some technical expertise but this can go a long way in impressing the customer as well as the client as these services are not as widely available in the packaging industry.
PRINTING AND FINISHING:
A fancy attractive design is not where the journey ends. To ensure the hard work on the design pays off, high-quality printing is of the utmost importance and critical to a great first impression. Inferior printing is the one thing that instantly destroys the box’s impression and makes it seem low-quality and degrades the product inside.
This can also greatly be improved by the use of finishing lamination. Options like matt lamination, gloss lamination, gloss or matt UV finishes and even foiling, etc. can be used to give the box a premium and unique feel.
MATERIALITY AND ECO-FRIENDLY BOXES:
When it comes to materiality many packaging and boxing companies are now moving towards environment-friendly materials. Biodegradable and eco-friendly materials such as eco-friendly kraft and boxboards can be used for the manufacturing of the boxes. Moreover, the majority of the boxes are manufactured in these materials and this has become common. Introducing a variety of materials can help the box stand out such as the recent introduction of the clear gable boxes.
Increasing the durability of the box, more specifically the handle of the box can make the user experience rather pleasant. The handles are made up of the same material as the box and the grip might not be as comfortable and assuring. The materiality of the box makes the option of introducing new material to improve the grip and quality of the handle, very viable. This can improve the image of your printed boxes and satisfy the clients.
A very impressive option regarding custom gable boxes is without a doubt custom insert. These inserts can be shaped according to the product requirement and they ensure the safety of the product and reduce the annoying random movement of the product inside the box. Moreover, these can go a long way in giving your boxes a much-needed luxurious element.
The use of windows can make a box very unique and attractive. The contrast between a solid material and a transparent material can have a lasting effect and enable the customer to have a peek inside to see the product as well, increasing the curiosity and catching the audience’s interest.
